Chocolate Chip Cookies

A recipe for choc chip cookies in the Malaysian Women's Weekly mag. It's a reader's recipe, by Sherlin of Selangor (I'm quoting so I ain't plagiarising here).

Prep time : 20 mins
Bake time : 20-30 mins
Makes 24

* 1/2 cup butter, softened
* 1 cup light brown sugar
* 3 tbsps granulated sugar
* 1 large egg
* 2 tsps vanilla extract
* 1 cup flour
* 1/2 tsp baking powder
* 1/2 tsp baking soda
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1 level tsp instant espresso coffee powder
* 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

#1 Preheat oven to 300'C. Cream butter with sugars using an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 secs or until fluffy.

#2 Beat in egg and vanilla for 30 secs.

#3 Sift dry ingredients together. Beat in butter mixture at low speed for 15 secs. Stir in espresso powder and chocolate chips.

#4 Using a tablespoon, scoop cookie dough; drop onto a greased cookie sheet. Place cookies 3cm apart. Gently press down dough with back of spoon to get a 5cm circle.

#5 Bake for 20 mins or until brown around the edges.

Hope to try this recipe, but I currently don't have an electric mixer (all these times I've been using a spoon and my own energy >.<
